Double DON – Desjardins: $67,540 raised

20 February 2024

The most recent Double DON – Desjardins matching donation campaign, held from November 15, 2023, to January 31, 2024, raised $67,740. During this fundraising drive, the Caisse Desjardins du Lac-Memphrémagog matched all donations received up to a total of $25,000.

On behalf of the Caisse Desjardins and its 34,000 members, I would like to thank all the donors who have contributed to making a real difference in the daily lives of the users of the Memphremagog Hospital and of those of the residents of Saint-Étienne-de-Bolton and its surrounding area. The leverage effect of Desjardins financial support has a major and direct impact on two structuring projects for our community. We are grateful to be able to help all these people thanks to our collective refund (Community Development Fund),” says Patrick Gravel, General Manager of Desjardins Caisse du Lac-Memphrémagog.

This amount will be used to fund two projects that will have concrete benefits for the population of the Memphremagog MRC.


  1. Purchase of a Shockwave Therapy Device

This shockwave therapy device would allow us to provide optimal care to all users with pathologies (calcified tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis, lateral epicondylitis, etc.) that the current equipment does not allow us to offer, while reducing the number of appointments for users. The more vulnerable clientele will have access to these treatments without having to pay for private treatments.


  1. Grand-Bois Meals on Wheels

The Grand-Bois Meals on Wheels project aims to offer a new service in the Saint-Étienne-de-Bolton area and its surroundings: the preparation and delivery of healthy and affordable meals to isolated individuals, those losing autonomy, and/or those experiencing poverty. It will contribute to improving the health conditions of the served population, breaking isolation, stimulating intergenerational solidarity, and strengthening the community’s collective capacities.

“We are proud to announce that we have reached our financial goal of raising $50,000, and as a result, two projects will be able to materialize and meet the various health needs of our entire community,” explains Lucie Brosseau, General Manager of the Memphremagog Hospital Foundation.
